The Elemental Qualities of Pisces

by Rebecca Brents

Pisces is a Water Sign

The Water Signs of the Zodiac are Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces. There is one Water Sign for each of the Qualities -- Cardinal, Fixed and Mutable. Cancer is Cardinal Water. Scorpio is Fixed Water, and Pisces is Mutable Water.

Water Signs in Astrology represent emotional, instinctive, and subconscious energy that is nurturing, healing, and transformative. They are feeling, sensitive, intuitive, responsive, protective, and passionate.

Water signs are feminine and responsive

Signs in the Water element are considered to be feminine in expression, which when dealing with metaphysical definitions means they are receptive, spontaneous, and sustaining ... more passive than active.

Pisces is the Visionary Mystic ... the person able to see beyond the visual limits of what exists in the present, the past, and even the future and touch the inexpressible regions of spiritual significance that exist beyond the sensory data and material structures of the physical world.

Pisces is a Mutable Sign

The Mutable Signs are Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, and Pisces. There is one Mutable Sign for each of the Elements -- Fire, Earth, Air and Water. Gemini is Mutable Air, Virgo is Mutable Earth, Sagittarius is Mutable Fire, and Pisces is Mutable Water. There are two masculine mutable signs and two feminine mutable signs.

These form two pairs of oppositions in the Zodiac (Gemini and Sagittarius oppose one another; Virgo and Pisces oppose one another.) ... and each element in these oppositions squares the elements of the other. These four signs together form the pattern of the Mutable Grand Cross in which each element has an agenda, a perspective on life and a set of values that antagonizes the other three.

Mutable signs are flexible

Mutable signs adjust, adapt, compromise, and negotiate. Their preferred tactics focus on working around obstacles and finding ways to "get along with" that which troubles them. Mutable signs move effortlessly with the tide, letting themselves be swept along in the stream of life's storms, confident of their resilience/

Pisces is the most mutable of all

Pisces is designated the Mutable Water sign. At heart, this gentle sign is the most pliant, permeable, and fragile member of the Zodiac ... completely in keeping with the serene stillness of a quiet standing pond ... or the foggy swirls of mist that shift only in response to outside movement.

* Earth, Wind and Fire ... and Water -- Compatibility in the Zodiac ---> An Introduction ---> Every astrologer hears the question: What signs am I compatible with? The person asking wants a list of three or four answers they can count on ... often to solve problems much larger than just a cluster of incompatible associates. Some of the misapplications of astrology suggest there are such lists ... and easy answers. There aren't.

* Masculine Signs / Feminine Signs -- It has nothing to do with sex ---> Two orientations on the world ---> In Astrology and metaphysics, Masculine and Feminine refers not to physical gender or personal manner, but to one's basic orientation on the world and one's preferred strategies for dealing with problems. Essentially, "masculine" signs prefer to seize the moment, make things happen and change what doesn't suit them with their actions and choices.

Basic Stuff About the Elements Astrology ---> The twelve Zodiac signs can be divided several ways, grouping signs that share common characteristics. Astrology recognizes four elements in the physical world -- fire, earth, air and water. Called the triplicities, this grouping puts three signs in each of the four categories. The signs in each category view life from a similar perspective and agree on what's effective and important in managing it.
